English graduate offering support in English and essay writing up to A-level

Methodology

My teaching takes a down-to-earth approach. Being a recent graduate, I am still familiar with the frustration that can be experienced during study, especially when a student is struggling with a particular subject. I can help to boost students understanding and confidence when approach literature and writing.

Experience

I am an English graduate with experience in academic mentoring, as well as sports coaching. I am able to offer support in the subject of English or general essay writing for students up to A-level, boosting confidence for students returning to school after closures due to coronavirus.
